PD70x: Possibly a problem with dirty contacts

You learned a few days ago that I had some problems with random errors in my Compact Drive PD70x flash card portable hard disk reader. It seems (I’m not 100% sure) that it came from dirty contacts between the hard disk drive and the electronics. I actually cleaned quickly those (thanks to Compact Drive for providing a little screw driver and using traditional Philips screws) and it seems that it did not happen again.

    To be sure that the solution was fully operational, I also added a small piece of folded paper to secure the disk position in its holder. That way, it won’t move anymore out of the electrical socket.
